AT&T Uverse, Xfinity (Comcast) or ?

I tried to look if there was a thread about this but couldn't find it. For phone, internet and TV how would you rate their system/service/cost if you use one of these? TIA.

I'm such a cheap ass miser I dropped my home phone and tv service over a year ago, with streamable Netflix I haven't missed it a bit!

I used to have U-verse, when my speed wasn't cutting it anymore I asked to upgrade and was told that due to my proximity from the hub a faster speed wasn't available at my address. Brilliant. I switched over to Comcast and though I have no great love for the company i am getting a slightly better speed for a much better promo price and the tech even hooked up a coax splitter for me so now I get basic channels on my TV as an added freebie.

Currently I'm paying $39/mo for 15-18mbps or something like that with the modem rental.

I just switched back from u-crap to com-crap. I like com-crap better. Like Rawkit, I was too far from the hub to watch/record two HD channels at once from my house with u-crap. Unfortunately this little, unfortunate piece of information wasn't disclosed until we were about 75% trough the install process. For our location u-crap was the worst.

Comcast, IMHO, has way better HD on-demand content and higher internet speeds. I am regularly in the 30+ meg range up and 5 M down on CC. With u-verse I was lucky if I got 12 up and 1.5 down. For reference the u-verse package was sold to us as an equivalent to our CC package at the time. Honestly u-verse was about 40% of our old CC plan.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Yuck on both. I got wide open west and I'm happy with them. Magic jack for house phone if I ever use it. And clear for wireless.
I'm a cheap skate too so I won't be paying for digital cable anytime soon. I always find something else to do rather than sit in front of the tv for hours on end.
